to the show. let's start off with iraq. the security situation there was assumed to be improving and so u.s. forces could do an aggressive pullout and some suggested that schedule to be accelerated to be out of iraq by 2011. security situation there is a little bit rougher. brian, any chance that u.s. forces will stay there beyond 2011? >> i think there are clear signs in the last couple of weeks there are ethnic tensions, very strong ones still simmering just beneath the surface and growing concern that could come out into the open. certainly there are extremists that are trying to stoke those fires again. and certainly the u.s. military expresses concern that this could get out of hand. on the other hand they are encouraged that so far things have been relatively stable. that the shiah population have been reserved in not responding to these more recent attacks. but having said that, with the elections coming up in january for the parliament in iraq, there is very little chance i think there will be some movement further movement on the political reconciliation that needs to happen becaus

to be very candid about that. just as bombings all military use of force have air raids and we measure them in civilian casualties. it releases are also a complex human system that has the air rate and we should and often don't measure and a subsequent civilian death there have been a lot of people killed as a result of people that we have released and in retrospect we should not have released and we have done a lot of damage to people we should not have captured or detains. the basic contours' we have used so far back to the conversation we just had if anybody is the enemy combatants within the war now the obama administration retain the substance but dropped the word enemy combatants does the authorization for the use of military force which representitive barbara lee voted against coming in for authorize the force contained by the act of detaining somebody? i argue parts of the enemy against which congress has authorized the use of force, that is the basic paradigm we have used to date. i would argue that is too loose and not a useful way of thinking about the category of people we want
. >> reporter: most of the lockerbie bombing were american and on u.s. television last night the condemnation of this prisoner release was clear, before al megrahi even arrived home the state department announced it had put pressure on the libyan government. >> i think obviously in light of the release, we have had a number of conversations with the government of libya. obviously, he will move back to libya, and we certainly believe that as a convicted criminal, he's not entitled to a hero's welcome. >> reporter: diplomatic relations between libya and the u.s. which had been improving could now be threatened by these scenes. this year is the 40th anniversary of the al fatah revolution in libya and colonel gadhafi is clearly using al megrahi's return as a propaganda coup despite the fact that this man is a convicted murderer who is terminally ill and expected to die within three months. >> that was james blake of itn reporting. >>> the british aren't just talking about how unhappy they are about the way the libyans handled ali al megrahi's return home. they may be prepared to do something abou
of you coming here and give us such a good speech in the middle of the summer. my question would be addressing the china case. based on the panelists' observation of the president's limited record on trade policy, what kind of -- do you think -- what kind of decision do you think the president is going to make on this case? do you think he's going to grant the remedy on this case and why? >> okay. guys, we're away from big principles right to the nitty-gritty. who would like this? >> if i had to guess, i would guess that there is someremedy. but it's really hard. and here's why. i could tell you a story that goes in neither direction. i could say well, they faced a similar conflict when it came to the name china as a currency manipulator. it was repeated, and it was the same conflict between the -- what the chinese government clearly wanted, and he opted to net -- not name china of currency manipulator in april. on the one hand, if you could say that that is really telling us where they're true preferences log. again, they will face similar choices. or you could say that put them

a frangz at $942.95. joining us this morning to talk about what's been going on in these markets, quite a roller composter week so far. martin dean marnek and alexis dewann fund manager at global cap xa. alexis, i want to start with you. it seems as though these are the unsyncopal markets. everyone has been saying there is a lot of money on the sidelines. it seems every time we have a dip, folks come back in and put a floor on the market. is this sustainable? >> i think you're right. there's tons of money out there, especially in the money market funds. bur yeah, almost when you look at the big systemic risk, it's off the table currently. you look at indicators and ted spreads are trading at the same levels they used to at the beginning of the credit crisis. so this is encouraging. the problem is on the economy and is it sustainable. it's interesting to see that most of the of the revenues from the company were slightly below expectation, although most of them beat on the earnings line. through a lot of cost cutling and a lot of layoffs. that may not be good for unemployment going forwa
's been the last 24 hours or so at 3.33%. u.s. yields here moved fairly high yesterday as we saw a bigger appetite for risk and a lot of folks moved out of the bond fixed income market. we've got the ten-year notoriety now at 3.63% and gold at the moment not attracting too much of a bid, either, with a lot of folks continuing to have that appetite for risk. credit teen. >> bertha, joining us now for market strategy, we have christian baberg market strategist glaxo bank and hopefully we will have steven teich later in the show. christian, do you think markets are too optimistic? >> yes, we do think so. if you look at what's going on in markets right now, markets are pricing in that consumers will start a pick up in demand. namely, that inventory to a certain part will have to be refilled. but from that point on, markets are pricing in a huge pick up in consumer demand and quite frankly, we've had some difficulty seeing where it's coming from. because if you see what consumers are doing, especially in the united states but also in europe, there are savings more now, the savings rate in the
if there's a backlash against that. phil lebeau, thanks so much for joining us. and you heard it first on "street signs," the demi-ashton indicate or. sanjay kapoor told us to look to invest in countries that have an older population like demi moore over a younger generation like ashton kutcher. well, it turns out the hollywood power couple watched them and they weighed in on the demi-ashton ratio via twitter. here are the tweets between the couple. ashton says to demi, "i love that we've become the demi-ashton ratio. lmao. you can figure out what that means on your own. it seems that i'm now a control factor in the markets. he goes on to say that -- this is ashton. "i love that i'm described as the beer-drinking party boy with no cash." i guess he feels like he's done a few things recently to make some money, and probably rightly so. but that's pretty funny. they're watching "street signs." let's take a look at the markets here as we get into the close. we were just barely in positive territory. at last check the dow has now turned negative just in the past few minutes. it's essential
>>> here in new york, markets taking a breather. commodity stocks and banks seeing -- >> in the u.s., state of wall street's rally could hinge this weekend on data on the consumer and the outcome of the fed meeting. >>> welcome to cnbc's worldwide exchange. we'll start out with a look at the global session at the beginning of the week. down six points. good session as we heard in japan in japan in particular today. nick kay off ten-month highs. one hour into their trading week taking profits from the ten-month highs we closed in at on friday. household goods, construction, weakest sectors at the moment.t. dollar is trying to retain most of its gains. lost a little bit of ground to the yen.n. still 97.40. ua dollar 141.89. bank of england's meeting last week and u.s. selling 85.33. nice to see you. >> hey, nice to see you, too. hope you had a good weekend. in asia, nice start to the week. duty optimism of the u.s. jobs on friday. fueling optimism. u.s. could lead the world into a recovery. that is providing support to the markets. ten-month high.. rise in machinery orders. first time
ago, candidate obama traveled to europe and said that he was not appearing as a candidate for u.s. president but as a fellow citizen of the world. mr. obama sees the world under his leadership as an active and interactive player as part of the international community. apparently the international community believes that we are and obama sees himself on center stage of that grade world amphitheater. the effect of this transformation is that america's popularity is now soaring. the percent of germans who viewed the u.s. favorably today is 64%, up 31% from 2008 poll. to the pugh, global the u.k., 69%, up from g last year. the french three-quarters, 75% of frenchmen now see america favorably versus 42% in 2008. so what is the big lever that has moved the seesaw of america's popularity so radically upward? acknowledgement of world citizenship? yes. but was it also this public apologetic admission by president obama? >> in america, there's a failure to appreciate europe's leading role in the world. instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common
're not clashing. very interesting. a little bit of a pullback yesterday here in the u.s. we snapped a four-session winning streak. this morning, it looks as though the futures right now are looking to the upside. we've got dow futures up by fair value by about 30 points or so. nasdaq futures are a bit below, dragging down cautious comments coming from john chambers at cisco. he says he thinks the economy is turning the corner. there are questions about cisco's organization and how they're managing the company these days. as far as the bond market is concerned, today it's all about the fate of quantitative easing. we're waiting to hear from the ecb, the boe and, of course, we do have here in the u.s. the jobs picture that we're going to be watching. the ten-year bund is at 3.38% and we've got the ten-year note coming back down in terms of the yield. a little bit yesterday having reached a high of 3.76%. we now know how much the quarterly funding is going to be. we're going to see at least $23 billion in ten years next week being auctioned. gold is easing off despite the weakness in the cora
in treatment and a lot of the advances in pharmaceuticals, come from the u.s. paying so much money, and if the u.s. creates a new system, how is it that those types of extremely advanced pharmaceutical development to get paid for? how do the canadian citizens pay for it when they go to the mikheil clinic, for instance? i think the states might be better this -- when they go to the mayo clinic, for instance? the cutting edge of medicine, how will that get paid for? >> well, i agree that u.s. institutions in the united states that are top notch, that are the top of the world, the mayo clinic and some of them, and you need to keep that, because it is very important research, and you are doing some things that we are not doing in canada, but if the canadian citizens want to go to the mayo clinic, they have to pay out of their pockets to do that because it is not covered, or, at least, the park that would be covered is very small compared to the real cost, so people are paying out of their pockets if they want to have that, he but these are four very specific things that could not be do
's get on to our first guest of the show. joining us, paul day and makio camada from lgt capital. let's start by talking with, well, both of you about what's going on with this inflation/deflation picture. paul, let's start with you. do you believe we're in an inflationary or deflationary environment at the moment? >> well, i think that the inflation seem to be the ones that shout the loudest. my view is going forward for the next half of the year, deflation will be the big problem. it's something we've never seen in the west historically. so i don't think people have the perception of what deflation can do for the economy. if you look at the household deleverage, it's going to carry on going on in the united states. i feel that the deflation argument will continue. if you look at things, for example, the length of unemployment in the states seems at the highest level since 1958. we've got many, many mortgage resets coming along at a time when real bond yields are at their highest level since around 1994. i think we will have sluggish rates. >> paul, where do you stand? >> i think i m
the u.s. economy lost 371,000 jobs last month. to keep up with population growth, economists figure the u.s. needs to create 130,000 jobs a month. in a recovery, the u.s. should create something like 300,000 to 400,000 a month, enough to begin reducing unemployment significantly. that means the country won't recover the jobs lost to this recession until somewhere around the year 2014 at the earliest. economist dean baker says it won't be easy to replace the jobs lost because the recession has slammed housing and auto manufacturing, two sectors that usually drive the recovery in hiring. >> in the case of residential construction, we have enormous over-capacity. it's very difficult to imagine any significant increase in employment in that sector for years to come. in the case of autos, we can see increased demand, we probably will see increased demand, but a lot of that demand is going to be for foreign cars right now. >> reporter: of course, the economy will eventually create enough jobs to make up for those lost in the great recession. but those jobs may also be in different industr

as real, their findings were taken by world leaders, so much so, they were used to frame legislation to the end of the century. the other agencies are prepared to hold grand meetings and copenhagen and then agree, 40 or more years, the assumption is global heating is so serious that expensive action is needed now if we are to avoid damaging climate change affecting our children and grandchildren. obviously it will be the cool spell indicating they have overestimated climate change. i think that instead they have underestimated the severity of global heating, mainly because they paid too much attention to human factors to industrial and domestic pollution, they have not enough attention to the earth's response to what we are doing. this is going to be the subject of my talk this evening. when i look at climate change from the point of view of our planet rather than the human viewpoint, i see that report as the scariest official document i have ever read. the earth does not just passively accept what we do, it responds to climate change and that response is more deadly than the small c
